VIDEO: Shikabala leads Al Raed to 5-1 victory over Al Batin
Al Raed registered their first league win of the Saudi season behind the efforts of Zamalek loanee Shikabala, who contributed a goal and an assist in the 5-1 victory.
Despite Al Raed scoring 5 goals in the match, it was Al Batin who opened the scoring in just the second minute through Georgi Silva. However, Al Raed were quick to respond, putting in 4 of their goals in the first half.
Saqr Atif scored the equalizer in the 13th minute, Daniel Amora scored the fourth goal three minutes before the break and striker Ismael Bangora had a brace in between.
Egyptian attacking midfielder Shikabala assisted the second goal to Ismael Bangora.
After the break, Al Raed continued to put on the pressure. Shikabala had a great chance in the 53rd minute, hitting the crossbar from a direct free kick. He would later get his goal, winning a penalty and scoring it to give Al Raed their 5th goal of the match.
Shikabala’s goal brings his goal tally to 3 for Al Raed, who now sit in 13th place with 5 points from 7 matches.
